Weekend Events in Paris
Valentine’s Day is on Thursday, which for most moms is not a day about romance, but about school parties, candy and Sponge Bob Square Pants Valentine’s. If you survive the holiday, there is actually a lot going on in Paris next weekend.
First, make plans to see O’Keeffe! This is a one-woman show based on the life of American artist Georgia O’Keeffe. It is showing at Paris Community Theatre Friday, February 15 at 7:30pm, Saturday, February 16 at 7:30pm, and Sunday, February 17 at 2:30pm. Starring acclaimed Dallas Actress Carolyn Garvin Wickwire, a Paris High School Graduate and sponsored by Lamar National Bank of Paris, TX. Tickets are $10.00 each and may be reserved by Email at: email@example.com, or by Phone: 903-784-0259 Weekdays 1:00 – 5:00 PM.
Next, grab your bowling shoes and form a team to bowl in Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake on Saturday, Feb. 16th. Teams will be accepted up until the day of the event. Teams consist of five to six bowlers of any age, and each bowler is asked to raise at least $100 to participate. All bowlers receive two free games of bowling, shoe rental, a free shirt and a team photo. Prizes will be awarded to teams for best team name, best costumes/shirts, best lane decorations and most money raised. To register your team or learn more about the event call Big Brothers Big Sisters at 903-784-7388 x503 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, on Saturday evening at 7pm the Texas A&M University Singing Cadets will be performing at the Paris Jr. High School Auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students (children under 5 are free). Tickets are available at Kwik Kopy and the Lamar County Chamber of Commerce.
